Peach Citrus Sangria



At my sister's baby shower, we served Peach Citrus Sangria, and it was delicious.  My mom and I wanted to offer a refreshing cocktail that was easy to make, festive, and light enough for a midday party (so, that ruled out anything with tequila or vodka).  We took Eddie Ross's Fresca-based Sangria recipe (that I made for Brooke's Baby Shower) and tweaked it a bit.  We gave it a peach flavor and made it pink!  The drink was such a huge hit that we actually ran out towards the end of the party.  I swear.  These ladies went through two huge batches, it was that yummy.




So, here's the recipe:





You can play with the proportions a bit, if you would like.  And you can also replace the original Fresca with Peach Fresca (although, we decided against it since Peach Fresca doesn't come in 2 liter bottles).  But, any way you mix it, this drink is really wonderful and perfect for sipping on the patio this summer.  Enjoy!

Timely post -- like everyone else I'm hosting a BBQ over Memorial Day. I always do a signature drink, and I may abandon my peach-vodka lemonade for this peach sangria!

Your shower was adorable! I was wondering what type of white wine you used, and about how many one batch would serve? This is the best looking sangria recipe I've found and I'm excited to make it this weekend for a party we are having!
